Terms and conditions
Paran Property provides legal services relating to the eviction of tenants and is a company operating in England and
Wales. We are not a firm of solicitors and do not purport to be solicitors or a legal firm. We are not regulated by the
Solicitors and Regulation Authority.
Our website provides a general service with legal information. Our employees do not act in their capacity as your
Our website does not imply any client/solicitor relationship. We advise that you seek the services of a solicitor if
you are unsure of your situation.
Use of this site is not equal to establishing a solicitor/client relationship.
If you supply inaccurate or lack of information, we are not responsible should your claim fail in court, or if it is
dismissed/delayed or struck out. The provision of accurate details are therefore critical.
Landlords must be the legal owner of the subject property. If this is not the case, your case may be dismissed/struck
out and any costs ordered will be payable by you.
In accordance with stage 2, Section 8, if a tenant lodged a defence/counter disrepair issue, the Court may adjourn
which can result in lost time and more cost. Before a case can proceed it is imperative to inform us of any repair
issues that the tenant has raised. In these circumstances you may want to instruct us to issue a Section 21 notice and
to issue accelerated possession proceedings, providing you meet the conditions.
Landlords must attend when a court hearing has been listed. Alternatively, landlords may instruct an agent to attend
on their behalf. A letter of authority will need to be handed in and signed by the landlord in these circumstances. The
agent must have a full knowledge of the tenancy and have with them the relevant paperwork (e.g. a rent arrears
schedule). At Court you or your agent will meet with an Advocate who will put forward your case to the Judge.
Section 8 possession proceedings: the manner in which the notice has been served and drafted is crucial to the claim.
If there is anything wrong with the notice, then it is likely it will fail. The Arrears schedule within the claim is
also critical, the usual format is expected to be provided.
If you are pursuing a possession order, then it is likely to be unsuccessful if the tenant reduces the arrears to
under 2 months before the hearing. This is determined at the discretion of the Judge.
If granted, the usual Court order is a 14-day possession order along with costs, if detailed on the claim form. If
exceptional hardship is pleaded, a longer period may be given by the Judge.
If the tenant fails to leave the property following a possession order, then you can move onto the instruction of
Also issued by the court will be a Risk Assessment form which must be filled in. If a bailiff is late, he will
contact the landlord or agent. Paran Property is not responsible for a bailiff’s failure to attend. You must contact
the police if there is likely to be a breach of the peace.
